General quality question

Post by Longtemps on Sun Apr 30, 2017 8:41 pm

Hi everybody a newby here and I have a general question on quality. I would be very grateful for your experienced comments.
Given that all new Motorhomes from all manufacturer's have problems of some sort and to varying degrees, how do you rate Auto-Sleeper in the general scheme of things? I am currently considering buying a new Warwick XL 2017 euro 6. What, if any, are the current issues with this van?
For your general information my previous vans over the last 15+ year's have all been Autotrail's with a max over 3500kg.
Many thanks for any comments forthcoming.

We're on our fourth consecutive Autosleeper.

Most of our problems were minor and I fixed them myself, if I didn't have the ability to do that then I would have been extremely peed off making arrangements to get stuff rectified as this would have been multiple visits to the dealer. We've had 1 issue requiring a repair at the dealer and one recall. 
The van isn't perfect and some people would be more critical than me, I'm trying to be realistic about my expectations of our van and want to enjoy using it rather than upset myself trying to obtain perfection. 
Overall I'm happy so far and we've avoided anything major, like water ingress or something actually not working properly, I'd sum up saying the niggles experienced are down to assembly techniques verses time constraints during production, I felt the pdi should have picked up more than it did.
Would I buy another? Probably yes

Welcome to the forum.
My opinion is that all motorhomes have problems. I believe that all 2017 stock is sold. Selling like hot cakes springs to mind.
Its best to be near a dealer.Some dealers are better than others.The Autosleeper factory are good on repairs.
If you can fix minor faults yourself it helps.
I personally would not buy new. I prefer a used van that can be checked and the owner quizzed before purchase.Its cheaper this way as well.

Regards

Micky

Hi there and a big welcome to the forum from Filey allthumbz. Quality wise (albeit I do moan about stupid mistakes the factory makes) I think AS are amongst the best. This is our first MH but whenever I talk to unbiased dealers or mobile mechanics they all sing AS's praises and tell us we have chosen a top make up!.
